TO THE 

Moft High and Mighty Prince JAMES, 

By the Grace of God, King of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, 

Defender of the Faith, &c. 

The TranJlatorS of the Bible wijh Grace , Mercy , and Peace , 
through Jefus Chrijl our Lord . 

G REAT and manifold tvert the bleffngs, moft dread Sovereign, which Almighty God, the Father of all 
writs, beftowed upon us the people of England, when firft be font Tour Majefty's Royal Perfon to rule 
mid reign over us. For whereas it was the expeSation of many, who wijhed not well unto our Sion, that 
tfa the fitting of that bright Occidental Star, ^uten Elizabeth of moft happy memory, feme thick and palpable 
thuds of derbufs would fohave overjhadowed this Land, that men fhould have been in doubt which way they were 
ti wolk ; aid that it fhould hardly be known, who was to direB the unfettled State ; the appearance of Tour Majefty, 
is of the Sun in bis ftrengtb, inftantby difpeUtd tbofe fuppoftd and furmifed mifts , and gave unto all that were well 
ejftfttd exceeding caufe of comfort •, especially when we beheld the Government eftablijbed in Tour Higbnefs , and Tour 
hopeful tyd, by an undoubted 'Title, and this alfo accompanied with peace and tranquillity at home and abroad. 

But mg all our joys, there was no one that more filled our hearts, than the bleffed continuance of the preaching 
of Gods feared word among us ; which is that ineftimable treafure, which excelletb all the riches of the earth ; 
hmfe tie fruit thereof extendetb itfelf, not only to the time fpent in this tranfitory world, but direBetb and difpofeth 
.-:n nto that eternal bappinefs which is above in Heaven. 

Then not to fuffer this to fall to the ground, but rather to take it up, and to continue it in that ft ate , wherein the 
fmous Predecejfor of Tour Higbnefs did leave it: nay, to go forward with the confidence and reflation of a Man 
in mntming the truth of Cbrift, and propagating it far and near, is that which bath fo bound and firmly knit the 
lots of oil Tour Majefty’s loyal and religious people unto you, that your very name is precious among them: their 
.ji doth behold Ton with comfort, and they blefs Tou in their hearts, as that fanBified Perfon, who, under God, is 
tlx immediate Author of their true bappinefs. And this their contentment doth not diminijb or decay, but every day 
mufeth and tdketb ftrength, when they obferve , that the zeal of Tour Majefty toward the houfe of God doth 
tut Jack or go backward, but is more and more kindled, manifefting itfelf abroad in the fartheft parts of Chriftendom, 
b) writing m defence of the Truth, (which hath given fucb a blow unto that man of Jin, as will not be healed,) and 
every daj at borne, by religious and learned difeourfe, by frequenting the houfe of God, by hearing the Word preached, 
bj cberi/bing the Teachers thereof, by caring for the Church, as a moft tender and loving nurfing Father. 

There are infinite arguments of this right chriftian and religious affeBion in Tour Majefty \ but none is more forcible 
le declare it to others than the vehement and perpetuated defire of accompUJbing and publijhing of this work, which 
mm with all humility we prefent unto Tour Majefty. For when Tour Higbnefs bad once out of deep judgment appre¬ 
hended bow convenient it was, that out of the Original Sacred Tongues, together with comparing of the labours, both 
in mown, and other foreign Languages, of many worthy men who went before us, there fhould be one mare exaB 
Tmjlatim of the hofy Scriptures into the Englilh Tongue * Tour Majefty did never dejift to urge and to excite 
thoft to whom it was commended, that the work might be baftened, and that the bufinefs might be expedited in fo 
decent a maimer, as a matter of fucb importance might juftly require. 

And now at Iqft, by the mercy of Goa, and the continuance of our labours , it being brought unto fuch a conclufion, 
os that we have great hopes that the Church of England Jhall reap good fruit thereby we bold it our duty to offer 
it to Tour Majefty, not only as to our King and Sovereign, but as to the principal Mover and Author of the work: 
bwnhlj craving of Tour moft Sacred Majefty, that fmee things of this quality have ever been fubjeB to the cenfures of 
iSataning um 4 Mfconttnud perfons, it may receive approbation and patronage from fo learned and judicious a Prince 
it Tour Higbnefs is, wihofe allowance and acceptance of our labours Jhall more honour and encourage us, than all the 
cokmations and bard interpretations of other men Jhall difmay us. So that if, on the one fide , we Jhall be traduced 
b Popijb Perfons at home or abroad, who therefore will malign us, becaufe we are poor i'nftruments to make God's holy 
Truth to be yet more and more known unto the people, whom they dejire fill to keep in ignorance and darknefs ; or if, on 
the other fide, we Jhall be maligned by felf conceited Brethren, who run their own ways, and give liking unto nothing , 
hut what is framed by tbemfelves , and hammered on their anvil •, we may reft fecure, fupportei within by the truth and 
money of a good conscience, having walked the ways of fimplicity and integrity, as before the Lord-, and fuftained 
without by the powerful proteBion of Tour Majefty’s grace and favour, which will ever give countenance to honeft and 
cbrijlm endeavours againft bitter cenfures and uncharitable imputations. 

The Lord of heaven and earth blefs Tour Majejly with many and happy days, that, as his heavenly hand hath enriched 
Tour Higbnefs with many fingular and extraordinary graces, fo you may be the wonder of the world in this latter age 
for bappinefs and true felicity, to the honour of that great GOD, and the good of bis Church, through Jefus Cbrift 
wr Lord and only Saviour, *

Z E A L to promote the common good, whe¬ 
ther it be by deviling any thing ourfelves, 
or revifing that which hath been laboured 
by others, deferveth certainly much re- 
fpeft and efteem, but yet findeth but cold 
entertainment in the world. It is welcomed with 
fufpicion in ftead of love, and with emulation in 
(lead of thanks: and if there be any hole left for 
cavil to enter, (and cavil, if it do not find an hole, 
will make one) it is fure to be mifconftrued, and in 
danger to be condemned. This will eafily be grant¬ 
ed by as many as know ftory, or have any expe¬ 
rience. I\or was there ever any thing projected, that 
favoured any way of newnefs or renewing, but the 
feme endured many a ftorm of gainfaying or oppo- 
fition ? A man would think that civility, wholelome 
laws, learning and eloquence, lynods, and Church- 
maintenance, (that wefpeak or no more things of 
this kind) mould be as fefe as a fan&uaiy, and 

i out of (hot, as they fey, that no man woula lift up 
is heel, no, nor dog move his tongue againft the 
motioners of them. For by the firft we are diftin- 
guifhed from brute beads led with fenfuality: by the 
lecond we are bridled and reftrained from outrageous 
behaviour, and from doing of injuries, whether by 
fraud or by violence: by the third we are enabled 
to inform and reform others by the light and feel¬ 
ing that we have attained unto ourfelves: briefly, 
by the fourth, being brought together to a parley 
face to face, we fooner compofe our differences, than 
by writings, which are endlefs: and laftly, that the 
Church be fufficiently provided for is fo agreeable 
to good reafon and confcience, that thofe mothers 
a;o holden to be lefs cruel, that kill their children 
as foon as they are bom, than thofe nuriing fathers 
and mothers, (wherefoever they be) that withdraw 
from them who hang upon their breads (and upon 
whole breads again themfelves do hang to receive the 
fpiritual and finceremilkof the word) livelihood and 
lupport fit for their edates. Thus it is apparent, 
that thefe things which we fpeak of are of molt 
neceflary ufe, and therefore that none, either without 
abfurdity can fpeak againd them, or without note of 
wickednefs can fpurn againd them. 

Yet for all that, the learned know, that certain 
worthy men have been brought to untimely death for 
none other fault, but for feeking to reduce their coun¬ 
trymen to good order and difcipline: And that in 
fome Commonweals it was made a capital crime, 
once to motion the making of a new law for the 
abrogating of an old, though the fame were mod 
pernicious : And that certain, which would be 
counted pillars of the State, and patterns of virtue 
and prudence, could not be brought for a long time 
to give way to good letters and refined fpeech ; but 
bare themfelves as averfe from them, as from rocks 
or boxes of poifon: And fourthly, that he was no 
babe, but a great Clerk, that gave forth, (and in 
writing to remain to poderity) in paflion peradven¬ 
ture, but yet he gave forth, That he had not feen 
any profit to come by any fynod or meeting of the 
Clergy, but rather the contrary: And ladly, againd 
Churchmaintenance and allowance, in luch fort 
as the ambafladors and mefiengers of the great King' . 


of Kings (hould be fumiffied, it is not unknown 
what a n£Kon or fable (fo it is efteemed, and for no 
better by the reporter himfelf, though luperftitious) N**cUr*r. 
was devifed: namely. That at fuch time as the profef- 
fors and teachers of Chriftianity in the Church of 
Rome, then a true Church, were liberally endowed, 
a voice forfooth was heard from heaven, faying. 

Now is poifon poured down into the Church, &c. 

Thus not only as oft as we fpeak, as one faith, but 
alfo as oft as we do any thing of note or confequence, 
we fubje£t ourfelves to every one’s cenfure, and hap¬ 
py is he that is lead tolled upon tongues; for utterly 
to efcape the fnatch of them it is impoffible. If any 
man conceit, that this is the lot ana portion of the 
meaner fort only, and that Princes are privileged 
by their high eftate, he is deceived. As the /word % s«n u. 
devoureth as well one as another , as it is in Samuel; 2 c. 
nay, as the great commander charged his foldiers in 
a certain battle to ftrike at no part of the enemy, 
but at the face; and as the king of Syria command-

and the chiefeft. David was a worthy prince, and no 
man to be compared to him for his find deeds; and 
yet for as worthy an a£l as ever he did, even for bring¬ 
ing back the ark of God in folemnity, he was dom¬ 
ed and fcoffed at by his own wife. Solomon was great- * Sam* 
er than David, though not in virtue, yet in power ; 
and by his power and wildom he built a temple to the 
Lord, fuch an one as was the glory of the land of 
Ifrael, and the wonder of the whole world. But 
was that his magnificence liked of by all l We doubt 
of it. Otherwife why do they Jay it in his fon’s 
difh, and call unto him for f eafing of the burden ? f #*#*#- 
Make, fay they, the grievous fervitude of thy father , Setae, 
and his fore yoke, lighter . Be like he had charged them i King i*. 
with fome levies, and troubled them with (ome car- 4* 
riages; hereupon they raife up a tragedy, and wi/h 
in their heart the temple had never been built. So 
hard a thing it is to pleafe aJi, even when we pleafe 
God beft, and do feek to approve ourfelves to every 
one’s confcience. 

If we will defeend to latter times, we (hall find The high- 
many the like examples of fuch kind, or rather un- eftperion - 
kind, acceptance. The firft Roman Emperor did H ** have 
never do a more pleafing deed to the learned , nor been ca- 
more profitable to pefteri ty, for conferving the re- *3 rail,a ’ 
cord of times in true fupputarion, than when he c.c*for. 
corrected the Calendar, and ordered the year accord - Plutarch. 
ing to the courfe of the fun: and yet this was imput¬ 
ed to him for novelty, and arrogancy , and procured 
to him great obloquy. So the firff Chriftened Em - Confan «% - 
peror (at the Jeaft wife, that openly profefled the tmg.W*****/ 
faith himfelf, and allowed others to ao the like,) for 
ftrengthening the empire at his great charges, and 
providing for the Church, as he did, got for his la¬ 
bour the name Pupillus, as who would (ay, a wafteful 
Prince, that had need of a guardian or overfeer. So AureLPiS. 
the beft Chriftened Emperor, for the love that he 7beodofiiu . 
bare unto peace, thereby to enrich both himfelf and Zojmus, 
his fubjeds, and becaufe he did not feek war, but find 
it, was judged to be no man at arms, (though in¬ 
deed he excelled in feats of chivalry, and (hewed fo

much when he was provoked,) and condemned for 
... giving himfelf to his cafe, ana to his pleafure. To 
^ be(hort, the moft learned Emperor of former times. 

' (at the leaft, thegreateft politician,)what thanks had 
he for cutting off the fuperfluities of the laws, and 
digefting them into fome order and method ? This, 
that he hath been blotted by fome to be an Epito- 
mift, that is, one that extinguiftied worthy whole 
volumes, to bring his abridgements into requeft. 
. This is the meafure that hath been rendered to ex¬ 
cellent Princes in former times, cum bene facerent , 
male audirt , for their good deeds to be evil fpoken 
of. Neither is there any likelihood that envy and 
malignity died and were buried with the ancient. 
Kom.ji. No, no, the reproof of Mofes taketh hold of moft 
Jti rf ages, Ye are rijen up in your fathers' /lead, an increafe 
' u of finful men. What is that that hath been done ? that 
Afti Jt wbicb Jhall be done: and there is no new thing under the 
51. fun, faith the wife man. And S. Stephen , as your 
RisMa* fathers did, fo do ye. This, and more to this pur- 
jety, % pofe, his Majefty that now reigneth (and long, and 
combncy, * on g* may he reign, and his offspring forever. Him- 
notwith- filf, and children, and children's children always !) knew 
fanning full well, according to the Angular wifdom given un- 
olurama- to him by God, and the rare learning and experience 
Arm t * lat alined unto ; namely. That whofoever 
of the attempteth any thing for the publick, (efpecially if it 
Englifh P^ain to religion, and to the opening and clearing 
tranflad- of the word of God,) the fame fetteth him/elf upon 
00. a ftage to beglouted upon by every evil eye ; yea, he 
cafteth* himJelf headlong upon pikes, to be gored 
by every (harp tongue. For he that meddleth with 
7" men's religion in any part meddleth with their 
cuftom, nay, with their freehold; and though they 
***' find no content in that which they have, yet they 
cannot abide to hear of altering. Notwithstanding 
his royal heart was not daunted or difeouraged for 
i. this or that colour, but flood refolute, as a Jlatue 
rj^trlof immoveable, and an anvil not eafy to be beaten into 
flutes, as one faith; he knew who had chofen him 
Mtbafy to beafoldier, or rather a captain; and being allured 
Ww. that the courfe which he intended made much for 
the glory of God, and the building up of his Church, 

. he would not fuffer it to be broken off for whatfoever 
freechesor pra&ices. It doth certainly belong unto 
kings, yea, it doth fpecially belong unto them, to 
have care of religion, yea, to know it aright, yea, to 
profefs it zealoufly, yea, to promote it to the utter- 
moft of their power. This is their glory before all 
nations which mean well, and this will bring unto 
them a far moft excellent weight of glory in the day 
* of the Lord Jefus. For the Scripture faith not in 
vCrifii*. ™ n > fhem that honour me I will honour: neither was 
lujtbm !t . a va in word that Eufebius delivered long ago, That 
kb, 10. P«*y toward God was the weapon, and the only 
i6 h 8. weapon, that both preferved Conjlantine's perfon, ana 
avenged him of his enemies. 

.p. But now what piety without truth ? What truth, 
pnife of w ” al favin 2 lrut *b without the word of God ? What 
the holy Goffi whereof we may be fure, without the 

Scrip. Scnpture? The Scriptures we are commanded to 
turn, ftarch, Joh. $. *9. Ifa . 8. 20. They are com¬ 
mended that fearened and ftudied them, Atts 17 . 11 . 
and 8 . 2 8, 29. They ar£ reproved thariwere unfkil- 
ful in them, or flow to believe them, Mattb, 22. 29. 
Luke 24. 25. They can make us wife unto falva-

mftruftus; if but of the way, they will bring us 
homej if out of order, they will reform us; if in 
f!' heavinefe, comfort us; if dull, quicken us ; if cold, 
mflame us. Tolle, lege\ tolle, lege \ Take up and 
( d , take up and read the Scriptures, (for unto 

$Uu?uL thc “ l >vas the dire&ion) it was faid unto St. Au- 
D< unit. l u fiine by a fupernatural voice. IVhatfcever is in 
"tdtndiy the feripturesj believe me , faith the fame St. Auguf- 
{ T Unt > u high and divine ; there is verily truth , and a 


doftrine mojl fit for the refrefhing and renewing of 
men's minds, and truly fo tempered, that every one may 
draw from thence that which ts fufficient for him, if he 
come to dratv with a devout ana pious mind , as true ^ 
religion requireth. Thus St. Augujline . And St. Hie- ron , 
rome, Ama Scripturas, (A amabit te fapientia, See. adDeme - 
Love the Scriptures, and wifdom will love thee, triad. 
And St. Cyrill againft Ju(ian, Even boys that are bred S.CyrtUj. 
up in the Scriptures become mofl religious, &c. But J Um 
what mention we three or four ufes of the Scripture, 
whereas whatfoever is to be believed, or pra&ifed, 
or hoped for, is contained in them ? or three or 
four ientences of the Fathers, fince whofoever is 
worthy the name of a Father, from Chrift’s time 
downward, hath likewife written not only of the 
riches, but alfo of the perfection of the Scripture ? 

I adore the fulnefs of the Scripture, faith Tertullian Ter tut. 
againft Hermogenes . And again, to Apelles an here- afverf. 
tick of the like (lamp he laith, 1 do not admit that 
which thou bringefl in (or concludeft) of thine own 
(head or ftore, de tuo) without Scripture. So St. Juflin ebrift. 
Martyr before him; We mujl know by all means (faith r o*>> ri, 
he) that it is not lawful (or poflible) to learn (any juflin. 
thing) of God or of right piety, fave only out of the 
Prophets , who teach us by divine inspiration. So St. wgoq. Ex- 
’ Bajil after Tertullian, It is a manifeft falling away from Tw/Yff-ipt- 
the faith, and a. fault of preemption, either to reject (fccnocq 
any of thofe things that are written , or to bring in (up- myopia, 
on the head of them, i«way«r>) any of thofe things s. Bajil. 

I that are not written. We omit to cite to the fame my uirm. 
effe£t St. Cyrill Bifhop of Jerufalem in his 4 . Catech. 

St. Hierome againft Helvidius, St. Augujline in his 
third book againft the letters of Petilian, and in very 
many other places of nis works. Alfo we forbear to 
defeend to later Fathers, becaufe we will not weary 
the reader. The Scriptures then being acknow¬ 
ledged to be fo full and fo perfect, how can we ex- 
cufe ourfelves of negligence, if we do not ftudy 
them ? of curiofity, if we be not content with them? ’E»£i<ru/wi 
Men talk much of hyawm, how many fweet and <rvKaptpu 9 
goodly things it had hanging on it; of the Philofo- *}*r*ow*f 
pher’s ftone, that it turneth copper info gold; of «jmr?, 
Cornu-copia, that it had all things neceflary for food fUXi h ko- 
in it; of Panaces the herb, that it was good for all tuAij, jr. ^ 
difeafes ; of Catholicon the drug, that it is inftead of See • 
all purges; of Vulcan's armour, that it was an ar- An olive 
mour of proof againft all thrufts and all blows, *' 0ll gh 
&c. Well, that which they falfely or vainly attributed 
to thefe things for bodily good, we may juftly and 
with full meafure aferibe unto the Scripture for fpi- wooI> 
ritual. It is not only an armour, but alfo a whole whereup- 
armoury of weapons, both offenfive and defenfive; on dill 
whereby we may fave ourfelves,,and put the enemy 
to flight. It is not an herb, but a tree, or rather a ajl ^ rea 
whole paradife of trees of life, which bring forth 
fruit every month, and the fruit thereof is for meat, andojl? 
and the leaves for medicine. It is not a pot of 
Manna, or a crufe of oil, which were for memory 
only, or for a meal’s meat or two ; but, as it were, 
a fhower of heavenly bread fufficient for a whole 
hoft, be it never fo great, and, as it were, a whole 
cellar full of oil vefieis; whereby all our necefiities 
may be provided for, and our debts difeharged. In 
a word, it is a panary of wholfome food againft Kwo? U- 
fenowed traditions; a phyfician’s (hop d as St. Brfd S. 
calls it) of prefervatives againft poifoned herehes; hafdin '

rits ; a treafury of moft coftlv jewels againft beg- nium. 
garly rudiments; finally, a fountain of moft pure 
water fpringing up unto everlafting life. r And what 
marvel? the original thereof being from heaven, 
not from earth; the author being God, not man; 
the inditer, the holy Spirit, not the wit of the Apof-

word of falvation, &c; the effe&s, light of under- 
ftanding, ftablenefs of nerfwafion, repentance from 
dead works, newnefs of life, holinefs, peace, joy in

ftudy thereof, fellowlhip with the faints, participa¬ 
tion of the heavenly nature, fruition of an inheri¬ 
tance immortal, # undefiled, and that never fhall fade 
away. Happy is the man that delighteth in the 
Scripture, ana thrice happy that meditateth in it day 
and night. 

But how (hall men meditate in that which they 
cannot underftand ? How fhall they underftand that 
which is kept clofe in an unknown tongue ? as it is 
written. Except 1 know the power of the voice, I Jhall 
be to him that fpeaketh a barbarian , and he that/peak - 
eth Jhall be a barbarian to me. The Apoftle except- 
eth no tongue; not Hebrew the ancienteft, not Greek 
the moft copious, 'not Latin the fineft. Nature 
taught a natural man to confefs, that all of us 
in tnofe tongues which we do not underftand are 
plainly deaf; we may turn the deaf ear unto them. 
The Scythian countea the Athenian , whom he did 
not underftand, barbarous: fo the Roman did the 
Syrian, and the Jew: (even St. Hierome himfelf call- 
eth the Hebrew tongue barbarous; belike, becaufe 
it was ftrange to fo many:) fo the Emperor of Con - 
Jlantinople calleth the Latin tongue barbarous, though 
Pope Nicolas do ftorm at it: fo the Jews long before 
Cbrtft called all other nations Lognajim , which is little 
better than barbarous. Therefore as one complaineth 
that always in the Senate o i Rome there was one 
or other that called for an interpreter; fo left the 
Church be driven to the like exigent, it is neceflaiy 
to have tranflations in a readinefs. Tranflation it is 
that openeth the window, to let in the light $ that 
breaketh the (hell, that we may eat the kernel; that 
putteth afide the curtain, that we may look into the 
moft holy place; that removeth the cover of the well, 
that we may come by the water; even as Jacob 
rolled away the ftone from the mouth of the well, 
by which means the flocks of Laban were watered. 
Indeed without tranflation into the vulgar tongue, 
the unlearned are but like children at Jacob's well 
(which was deep) without a bucket or fomething to 
draw with: or as that perfon mentioned by Efay, 
to whom when a fealea book was delivered with 


inhabitants in AJia by reafon of the cdnquefts that 
there the Grecians had made, as alfo by the colonies 
which thither they had fent. For the fame caufes 
alfo it was well underftood in many places of Europe , 
yea, and of Africk too. Therefore the word of God, 
being fet forth in Greek , becometh hereby like a can¬ 
dle fet upon a candleftick, which giveth light to all 
that are in the houfe; or like a proclamation founded 
forth in the marketplace, which moft men prefent- 
ly take knowledge or; and therefore that language 
was fitted to contain the Scriptures, both for the 
firft preachers of the Gofpe! to appeal unto for wit- 
nefs, and for the learners alfo of tnofe times to make 
fearch and trial by. It is certain, that that tranflation 
was not fo found and fo perfedl, but that it needed 
in many places correction; and who had been fo 
fufficient for this work as the Apoftles or apoftolick 
men ? Yet it feemed good to the Holy Ghoft and to . 
them to take that which they found, (the fame be¬ 
ing for the greateft part true and fufficient) rather 
than by making a new, in that new world and green 
age of the Church, to expofe themfelves to many 
exceptions and cavillations, as though they made a 
tranflation to ferve their own turn; and therefore 
bearing witnefs to themfelves, their witnefs not to 
be regarded. This may be fuppofed to be fome 
caufe, why the tranflation of the Seventy was al¬ 
lowed to pafs for current. Notwithftanding, though 
it was commended generally, yet it did not fully 
content the learned, no not or the Jews. For not 
long after Chri/l Ayuila fell in hand with a new tranf¬ 
lation, and after him Theodotion 9 and after him Sym- 
machus: yea, there was a fifth, and a fixth edition, 
the authors whereof were not known. Thefe with 
the Seventy made up the Hexapla , and were worthily 
and to great purpofe compiled together by Origen . 
Howbeit the edition of the Seventy went away with 
the credit, and therefore not only was placed in the 
midft by Origen , (for the worth and excellency there¬ 
of above the reft, as Epbbanius gatherethj but alfo Epipbox. 
was ufed by the Greek Fathers for the ground and 
foundation of their commentaries. Yea, Epipka- &L n j gm 
nius abovenamed doth attribute fo much unto it, 


that he holdeth the authors thereof not only for in- st. AuguJI, 
terpreters, but alfo for prophets in fome refpefl : and 2 .De doc- 
Juflinian the Emperor, injoining the Jews his fub- trin. Cbri-

While God would be known only in Jacob, and iv uu 11jt.11 aiiu live vjwu, auu iuvh iiuutd ntui auu ^ ^

all the earth befides was dry; then for one and the were not prophets. They did many things well, as * 

fame people, which fpake all of them the language of learned men; but yet as men they (tumbled and fell, st. Hieron. 

one while through overfight, another while through de optima 
ignorance; yea, fometimes they may be noted to gentre in- 
add to the original, and fometimes to take from it: terpret . 
which made the Apoflles to leave them many times , 
when they left the Hebrew , and to deliver the fenfe 
thereof according to the truth of the word, a$ the 
Spirit gave them utterance. This may fuffice touch¬ 
ing the Greek tranflations of the Old Teftament. . 

There were alfo within a few hundred years after Tranflati- 
Chri/l tranflations many into the Latin tongue: tlon out 


Canaan, that is, Hebrew, one and the fame original 
in Hebrew Was fufficient. But when the fulnefs of 
time drew near, that the Sun of righteoufnefs, the 
Son of God, (hould come into the world, whom 
God ordained to be a reconciliation through faith in 
his blood, not of the Jew only, but alfo of the 
Greek, yea, of all them that were fcattered abroad; 
then, lo, it plcafed the Lord to ftir up the fpirit of a 
Greek prince, (Greek for defeent and language) even 
of Ptolemy Philadelph king of Egypt, to procure the 
translating of the book or God out of Hebrew into 
Greek. This is the tranflation of the Seventy inter¬ 
preters, commonly fo called, which prepared the way 
for our Saviour among the Gentiles by written preach¬ 
ing, as St. John Baptijl did among the Jews by vo¬ 
cal. For the Grecians, being delirous of learning, 
were not wont to fuffer books of worth to lie mould¬ 
ing in kings’ libraries, but had many of their fervants, 
ready feribes, to copy them out, and fo they were 
difperfed and made common. Again the Greek 
tongue was well known and made familiar to moft 


for this tongue alfo was very fit to convey the Law 
and the Gofpel by, becaufe in thofe times very many Greek in- 
countries of the Weft, yea of the South, Eaft-, an a to Latin. 
North, fpake or underftood Latin, being made pro¬ 
vinces to the Romans. But now the Latin tranfla¬ 
tions were too many to be a 11 good: for they were 
infinite; (Latini interpretes nullo modo numeraripojfunt, 
faith St. Angujline.) Again, they were not out of St. Augujl.

dear, the Latin derived from it muft needs be mud¬ 
dy. This moved St, Hierome, a molt learned Fa¬ 
ther, and the bed linguift without controverfy of 
his age, or of any other that went before him, to 
undertake the tranflating of the Old Teftament out 
of the very fountains themfelves; which he perform¬ 
ed with that evidence of great learning, judgment, 
induftry, and faitbfulnefs, that he hath for ever bound 
the Church unto him in a debt of fpecial remem¬ 
brance and thankfulnefs. 

Thetran- Now though the Church were thus fumifhed with 
dating of Greek and Latin tranllations, even before the faith of 
the Scrip- Cbriji was generally embraced in the Empire: (for 
twe into t he learned know, that even in St. Hierome 9 s time 
thcvnlgar ^ Confulof Romt and his wife were both Ethnicks, 
and about the fame time the greateft part of the Se- 
Mtrcdl. natc ^°) Y* forall that the godly learned were not 
hfau content to have the Scriptures in the language which 
themfelves underftood, Greek and Latin, (as the good 
* 18# lepers were not content to fare well themfelves, but 
‘ 5 ’ acquainted their neighbours with the ftore that God 
had fent, that they aflo might provide for themfelves ;) 
but alfo for the behoof and edifying of the unlearned, 
which hungered and thirfted after righteoufnefs, and 
had fouls to be faved as well as they, they provided 
tranllations into the vulgar for their countrymen, in- 
fomuch that mod nations under heaven aid fhortly 
after their converfion hear Chrijl fpeaking unto 
them in their mother tongue, not by the voice of their 
minifteronly, but alfo by the written word tranflated. 
If any doubt hereof, he may be fatisfied by examples 
enough, if enough will ferve the turn. Firft, St.

Stfkrmo. he, the time was, had fet forth the tranfiation 
of the Seventy , fua lingua hominibus ; that is, for his 
countrymen of Dalmatia . Which words not only 
Six. Sen. Erafmus doth underftand to purport, that St. Hie -

liTucap. a Gaftro, (that we fpeak of no more) men not to be

i. om. i. Jofophers* did) vanijb away: but the Syrians, Egyptians, 
Indians , Perftans, Ethiopians, and infinite other nations , 
being barbarous people, tranflated it into their (mother) 
tongue, and have learned to be (true) Philofothers, he 
meaneth Chriftians. To this may be added Theo- 
TWw.5. d° Tti \ ** ncxt . unto him both for antiquity, and for 
‘ftmptut. learning. His words be thefe, Every country that is 
under the fun is full of thefe words, (of the Apoftles

M t ^ c Scriptures in the Hebrew tongue) is turned not 
inChm int0 language of the Grecians , but alfo of the 
Goth. So'. tmd Egyptians , and Perjians, and Indians , and 

m.hb.l. Armenians,and Scythians, and Sauromatians, and, brief 
cap. 57 . h, into all the languages that any nation ufeth . So he. 
yojjm in In like manner Ulpilas is reported by Paulus Dia- 
GhroMifp. m us and Ifidore, and before them by Sozomen, to 
have tranflated the Scriptures into the Gothick tongue: 
bj'l*. Sevilby Vaffeus , to have turned them 

tirun te- ^ drabick about the Year of our Lord 717: Beda 
faturidm by Cijlertienfis, to have turned a great part of them into 
dtMurt. Saxon: Efnard by Trithemius , to have abridged the 
to mho. French Plalter (as Beda had done the Hebrew) about 
mmw. the year 800: King Alured by the faid Cijlertienfis , 
ft*™ t0 b ave turned the Pfalter into Saxon: Methodius by 
mm Awniinus (printed at Ingolfiad) to have turned the 
900. Scriptures into Sclavman : f Faldo Bilhop of Frijing 


by Beatus Rhenanus, to have cauled about that time Rbenan* 
the Gofpels to be tranflated into Dutch rhyme, yet r f rum 
extant in the library of Corbinian ; Valdus by divers, iff”?**' 
to have turned them himfelf, or to have gotten them ' ' 
tumecL into French , about the Year 1160: Charles the 
fifth of that name, furnamed The wife , to have caufed seroald. 
them to be turned into French about 200 years after <ibuan . 
Valdus ’ time; of which tranfiation there be many 
copies yet extant, as witnefleth Beroaldus . Much about 
that time, even in our King Richard the fecond’s days, 

John Trevifa tranflated them into Englijh , and many 
EngUJb bibles in written hand are yet to be feen with 
divers; tranflated, as it is very probable, in that age. 

So the Syrian tranfiation of the New Teftament is 
in mod learned men’s libraries, of JVidminjiadius* 
fetting forth; and the Pfalter in Arabick is with many, 
of Auguftinus Nehtenjis ’ fetting forth. So Pojiel af- 
| firmetn, that in his travel he law the Gofpels in the 
Ethiopian tongue: And Ambrofe Thefius alledgeth the 
Pfalter of the Indians , which he teftifieth to have 
been fet forth by Potken in Syrian characters. So 
that to have the Scriptures in the mother tongue is 
not a quaint conceit lately taken up, either by the 
Lord Cromwell in England, or by the Lord Rade - ' " 

vile in Polony , or by the iLord Unmadius in the Emper¬ 
or’s dominion, but hath been tnought upon, and put 
in practice of old, even from the firft times of the 
converfion of any nation; no doubt, becaufe it was 
efteemed molt profitable to caufe faith to grow in Pial. 4a, 
men’s hearts the fooner, and to mal^e them to be able 8.

[ to bear a motherly affection toward her children, and adverfa- 
to allow them the Scriptures in the mother tongue: ries that 
but indeed it is a gift, not deferving to be called the Scrip-

licence in writing before they may ule them; and to be 
get that, they muft approve themfelves to their Con- F^^d 
feflor, that is, to be iuch as are, if not frozen in the mo " 
dregs, yet fowered with the leaven of their fuperfti- tongue 
tion. Howbeit it feemed too much to Clement the & c . * 

eighth, that there fhouid be any licence granted to 
have them in the vulgar tongue, and therefore he popxixhf 
overruleth and fruftrateth the grant of Pius the *©,. 
fourth. So much are they afraid of the light of the Sopboch 
Scripture, ( LucifugeeScripturarum, as TertuHian fpeak- See the ^ 
eth) that they will not truft the people with it, no obfervati- 
not as it is fet forth by their own fwom men, no not 
with the licence of their own Bifhops and Inquifi- Qemenr

the Scriptures to the people’s underftanding in any upon the ; 
fort, that they are not alhamed to confefs, that we 4th rule 
forced them to tranflate it into Englijh againft their of Pius 
wills. This feemeth to argue a bad caufe, or a bad ti ,e 4 *h‘s 
confcience, or both. Sure we are, that it is not he 
that hath good gold, that is afraid to bring it to the 
touchftone, but he that hath the counterfeit; nei- itb.prohib .

unto ys, and that though all the world had caufe to 
be offended, and to complain, yet that we had none. 
Hath the nurfe holden out the bread, and nothing 
but wind in it ? Hath the bread been delivered by 
the Fathers of the Church, and the fame proved to 
be lapidofus , as Seneca fpeaketh ? What is it to handle 
the word of God deceitfully, if this be not ? Thus 
certain brethren. Alfo the adverfaries of Judah and 
Jerufalem, like Sanballat in Nehemiah , mock, as we 
hear, both at the work and workmen, faying, What 
da thefe weak Jews y &c. will they make theJlones whole 
again out of the heaps of dujl which are burnt ? al¬ 
though they build , yet if a fox go up , he JhaU even break 
down their Jlony wall . Was their tranflation good 
before? Why do they now mend it? Was it not 
rood ? Why then was it obtruded to the people ? 
Yea, why did the Catholicks (meaning Popilh Ro - 
mamfts) always go in jeopardy for refufing to go to 
hear it ? Nay, if it mud be tranflated into Englijh , 
Catholicks are fitted to do it. They have learning, 
and they know when a thing is well, they can ma - 
num de tabula . We will anlwer them both briefly : 
and the former, being brethren, thus with St. 
Hierome , Damnamus veteres? Minime^ fed poft prio- 
rum ftudia in domo Domini quodpojfumus laboramus. 
That is, Do we condemn the ancient ? In no cafe: but 
after the endeavours of them that were before us , we 
take the bed pains we can in the houfe of God . As if 
he faid. Being provoked by the example of the learn¬ 
ed that lived before my time, I have thought it my 
duty to afiay, whether my talent in the knowledge 
of the tongues may be profitable in any meafure to 
God’s Church, led I (hould fepm to have laboured in 
them in vain, and led I (hould be thought to glory 
in men (although ancient) above that which was in 
them. Thus St. Hierome may be thought to (peak. 

And to the fame effeft fay we, that we are (o far 
off from condemning any of their labours that tra¬ 
velled before us in this kind, either in this land, or 
beyond fea, either in King Henry's time, or King 
Edward i, (if there were any tranflation, orcorreCH- 
on of a tranflation, in his time) or Queen Elizabeth's 
of ever renowned memory, that we acknowledge 
them to have been raifed up of God for the build¬ 
ing and fumifhing of his Cnurch, and that they de- 
ferve to be had of us and of pofterity in everlading 
remembrance. The judgment of Ariftotle is worthy 
and well known t If Timotheus had not been , we had 
not had much fweet mufick: But if Phrynis ( Timotheus ’ 
mader) had not been , we had not had Timotheus . 
Therefore blefled be they, and mod honoured be 
their name, that break the ice, and give the onfet 
upon that which helpeth forward to the faving of 
fouls. Now what can be more available thereto, 
than to deliver God’s book unto God’s people in a 
tongue which they underfland ? Since of an hidden 
treafure, and of a fountain that is fealed, there is no 
profit, as Ptolemy Philadelph wrote to the Rabbins or 
madersof the Jews , as witnefleth Epiphanius: and 
as St. Auguftine faith, A man had rather be with his 
dog than with a ftranger (whofe tongue is flrange unto 
him.) Yet for all that, as nothing is begun and per¬ 
fected at the fame time, and the Tatter thoughts are 
thought to be the wifer: fo, if we building upon 
their foundation that went before us, and being 
holpen by their labours, do endeavour to make that 
better which they left fo good 5 no man, we are fure, 
hath caufe to miflikeus ; they, weperfuadeourfelves, 
if they were alive, would thank us. The vintage of 
Abiezer , that drake the (froke: yet the gleaning of 
grapes of Ephraim was not to be delpifed. See Judges 8. 
2. Joajh the king of Ifrael did not fatisfy himfelf till 
he had fmitten the ground three times; and yet he 
offended the Prophet for giving over then. Aquila , 
of whom we fpake before, tranflated the Bible as 1 


carefully and as fkilfully as he could; and yet he 
thought good to go over it again, and then it got the 
credit with the Jews 9 to be called k*t 9 dxc/Sua f, that .*”***• 
is, accurately done, as St. Hierome witnefleth. How m hxeck 9 
many books of profane learning have been gone over ca *' 
again and again, by the fame tranllators* by others ? 

Of one and the fame book of Ariftotle 9 s Ethicks there 
are extant not fo few as fix or feven feveral tranfla- 
tions. Now if this cod may be befiowed upon the 
gourd, which affordeth us a little (hade, ana which 
to day flourilheth, but to morrow is cut down; what 
may we beffow, nay, what ought we not to bedow, 
upon the vine, the fruit whereof maketh glad the 
confidence of man, and the dem whereof abideth 
for ever ? And this is the word of God, which we T 
tranflate. What is the chaff to the wheat ? faith the <gertull % ad 
Lord . Tanti vitreum , quanti verum margaritum ! ( faith Martyr . 
Tertullian. ) If a toy of glafs be of that reckoning si tanti 
with us, how ought we to value the true pearl! viliffimum, 
Therefore let no man’s eye be evil, becaufe his Ma- vitrum, 
iefty’s is good; neither let any be grieved, that we q**ntipre- 
have a Prince that feeketh the increafe of the fpiri- am 
tual wealth of Ifrael ; (let Sanballats and Tobiahs ** ar & ar i- 
do fo, which therefore do bear their jud reproof;) 7 ^”' . 

but let us rather blefs God from the ground of our salvin. 
heart for working this religious care in him to have 
the tranflations of the Bible maturely confidered of 
and examined. For by this means it cometh to pafs, 
that whatfoever is found already, (and all is found 
for fubdance in one or other of our editions, and 
the word of ours far better than their authentick 
vulgar) the fame will (hine as gold more brightly, 
being rubbed and poli(hed; alto, if any thing be 
halting, or fuperfluous, or not fo agreeable to the 
original, the fame may be corrected, and the truth 
fet in place. And what can the King command to be 
done, that will bring him more true honour than 
this ? And wherein could they that have been Jet a 
work approve their duty to the King, yea, their obe¬ 
dience to God, and love to his Saints, more, than by 
yielding their fervice, and all that is within them, 
for the fumifhing of the work ? But befides all this, 
they were the principal motives of it, and therefore 
ought lead to quarrel it. For the very hiflorical truth 
is, that upon the importunate petitions of the Puri- 
tanes at his Majeffy v s coming to this crown, the 
conference at Hampton-court having been appointed 
for hearing their complaints, when by force of rea- 
fon they were put from all other grounds, they had 
recourfe at the lad to this (hift, that they could not 
with good confcience fubferibe to the communion 
book, fince it maintained the Bible as it was there 
tranflated, which was, as they faid, a mod corrupted 
tranflation. And although this was judged to be 
but a very poor and empty (hift, yet even hereupon 
did his Majefty begin to bethink himfelf of the good 
that might enlue by a new tranflation, and prefently 
after gave order for this tranflation which is now 
prefented unto thee. Thus much to fatisfy our 
fcrupulous brethren. 

Now to the latter we anfwer. That we do not deny, An anfwer 
nay, we affirm and avow, that the veiy meaned tran- to the im- 
flation of the Bible in Englijh , fet forth by men of Potations 
our profeflion, (for we have feen none of their’s of ot ^ 
the whole Bible as yet) containeth the word of God, ve *** 9 
nay, is the word of God: As the King’s fpeech 
which he uttered in Parliament, being tranflatea into 
French , Dutch , Italian , and Latin , is dill the King’s 
fpeech, though it be not interpreted by every tranf- 
lator with the like grace, nor peradventure fo fitly 
forphrafe, nor fo exprefly for fenfe, every where. 

For it is confeffed, that things are to take their deno¬ 
mination of the greater part; and a natural man 
could fay, Verum ubi multa nitent in carmine , non ego Horace, 
paucis offender maculis , &c. A man may be count-

miflies may be noted in the fetting forth of it. For 
what ever was perfect under the fun, where Apoftles’ 
or apoftolick men, that is, men endued with an ex¬ 
traordinary meafure of God’s Spirit, and privileged 
with the privilege of infallibility, had not their 
hand? TheRomanifts therefore in refufing to hear, 
and daring to bum the word tranflated, did no lefs 
than defpite the Spirit of grace, from whom origi¬ 
nally it proceeded, and whofe fenfe and meaning, as 
well as man’s weaknefs would enable, it did exprefs 
Judge by an example or two. 

Plutarch writeth, that after that Rome had been 
burnt by the Gauls, they fell foon to build it again : 
but doing it in hafte, they did not caft the ftreets, 
nor proportion the houfes, in fuch comely fafliion, as 
had been moftfightly ana convenient. Was Cata¬ 
lan* therefore an honeft man, or a good patriot, that 
fought to bring it to a combuftion ? Or Nero a good 
Prince, that aid indeed fet it on Are ? So by the 
ftory of Ezra and the prophecy of Haggai it may 
be gathered, that the temple built by Z erubbabel af¬ 
ter the return from Babylon was by no means to be 
compared to the former built by Solomon: for they that 
remembered the former wept when they confldered 
the latter. Notwithftanding might this latter either 
have been abhorred and forfaken by the Jews, or 
profaned by the Greeks ? The like we are to think 
of tranflations. The tranflation of the Seventy dif- 
fenteth from the Original in many places, neither 
doth it come near it for perfoicuity, gravity, ma- 
jefty. Yet which of the Apoftles did condemn it ? 
Condemn it ? Nay, they ufed it, (as it is apparent, 
and as St. Hierome and moft learned men do confefs;) 
which they would not have done, nor by their exam¬ 
ple of ufing of it fi> grace and commend it to the 
Church, if it had been unworthy the appellation and 
name of the word of God. And whereas they urge 
for their fecond defence of their vilifying and aoufing 
of the Englijh Bibles, or fome pieces thereof, which 
they meet with, for that hereticks forfooth were the 
authors of the tranflations: (hereticks they call us by 
the fame right that they call themfelves catholicks, 
both being wrong:) we marvel what divinity taught 
them fo. We are fure Tertullian was of another 
mind: Ex perfonis probamus fidem , an ex fide perfonas? 
Do we try men’s faith by their perfons ? We lhould 
try their perfons by their faith. Alfo St. Augujline 
was of another mind: for he, lighting upon certain 
rules made by Tycbonius a Donatijl for the better 
underftanding of the word, was not afhamed to 
makeufeof them, yea, to infert them into his own 
book, with giving commendation to them fo far forth 
as they were worthy to be commended, as is to be 
fen in St. Augujline's third book De Dottr. Chrift. 
To be (hort, wrigen , and the whole Church of God 
for certain hundred years, were of another mind: 
for they were fo far from treading under foot (much 
more from burning) the tranflation of Aquila a pro- 
felyte, that is, one that had turned Jew , of Symma- 
thus, and Theodotion, both Ebionites , that is, moft 
vile hereticks, that tjiey joined them together with 
the Hebrew original, and the tranflation of the Se¬ 
venty, (as hath been before fignified out of Epipha - 
ntus) and fet them forth opemy to be confldered of 
and perufed by all. But we weary the unlearned, 
who need not know fo much $ and trouble the learn- 
tdj who know it already.

ties. If we will be fons of the truth, we muft con- 
fider what it fpeaketh, and trample upon our own 
credit, yea, and upon other men*s too, if either be 
any way an hinderance to it. This to the caufe. 

Tnen to the perfons we fay, that of all men they 
ought to be moft filent in this cafe. For what varie¬ 
ties have they, and what alterations have they made* 
not only of their fervice books, portefles, and bre¬ 
viaries, but alfo of their Latin tranflation ? The fer¬ 
vice book fuppofed to be made by St. Ambroje , f Offi- 
ciumAmbroJianum) was a great while in fpecial uie and 
requeft: but Pope Adrian , calling a council with the Durand . 
aid of Charles the Emperor, abolifhed it, vea, burnt Kb. 5. cap 
it, and commanded the fervice book of ot. Gregory *• 
univerfally to be ufed. We|l, OJficium Gregorianum 
gets by this means to be in credit ; but doth it con¬ 
tinue without change or altering ? No, the very Ro¬ 
man fervice was of two falhions; the new fafliion* 
and the old, the one ufed in one Church, and the 
other in another: as is to be feen in Pamelius a Ro- 
manift, his preface before Micrologus. The fame 
Pamelius reporteth out of Radulphus de Rivo , that 
about the year of our Lord 1277 Pope Nicolas the 
third removed out of the churches of Rome the 
more ancient books (of fervice,) and brought into ufe 
the miflals of the Friers Minorites, and command¬ 
ed them to be obferved there; infomuch that about 
an hundred years after, when the above named Ra¬ 
dulphus happened to be at Rome , he found all the 
books to be new, of the new ftamp. Neither was 
there this chopping and changing in the more an¬ 
cient times onlv,l>ut alfo of late. Pius Quintus 
himfelf confefletn, that every biftioprick almolt had 
a peculiar kind of fervice, moft unlike to that which 
others had; which moved him to abolifh all other 
breviaries, though never fo ancient, and privileged 
and publifhed by Bilhops in their Diocefes, and to 
eftablifti and ratify that only which was of his own 
fetting forth in the year 1568. Now when the Fa¬ 
ther of their Church, who gladly would heal the 
fore of the daughter ot his people loftly and (lightly* 
and make the beft of it, findeth fo great fault witk 
them for their odds and jarring; we hope the child¬ 
ren have no great caufe to vaunt of their unifor¬ 
mity. But the difference that appeareth between our 
tranflations, and our often corre£ling of them, is the 
thing that we are fpecially charged with; let us fee 
therefore whether they themfelves be without fault 
this way, (if it be to be counted a fault to correft) 
and whether they be fit men to throw ftones at us: 

O tandem major parcas infane minori : They that are 
lefs found themfelves ought not to objed infirmities 
toothers. If we (hould tell them, that Valla , Sta- 
pulenfis , Erafmus , and Vives , found fault with their 
vulgar tranflation, and confequently wifhedthe fame 
to be mended, or a new one to be made; they would 
anfwer peradventure, that we produced their enemies 
for witnefles againft them; albeit they were in no 
other fort enemies, than as St. Paul was to the Gala¬ 
tians , for telling them the truth: and it were to be 
wiftied, that they had dared to tell it them plainlier 
and oftner. But what will they fay to this. That 
Pope Leo the tenth allowed Erafmus ’ tranflation of 
the New Teftament, fo much different from tire

which we had hammered: but having and ufing as

for (lownefs, nor coveting praife for expedition, we 
have at length, through the good hand of the Lord up¬

t'DiMr. thofe that be not in all refpefts fo complete as they 
^•'• 9 * (hould be, being to feek in many things ourfelves, 
it hath pleafed God in his Divine Providence here 
and there to fcatter words and fentences of that diffi¬ 
culty and doubtfulnefs, not in do&rinal points that 
concern falvation, (for in fuch it hath been vouched 
that the Scriptures are plain,) but in matters of lefs 
moment, that fearfulnefs would better befeem us

bUr ' ( *t'S' Melius eft dubitare de occultis y quam litigare de incer - 
tis: It is better to make doubt of thofe things which 
arefecret, than to ftrive about thofe things that are 
«vs|Xf- uncertain. There be many words in the Scriptures, 
yifuia, which be never found there but once, (having nei¬ 
ther brother nor neighbour, as the Hebrews lpeak) 
fo that we cannot be nolpen by conference of places. 
Again, there be many rare names of certain birds, 
hearts, and precious ftones, &c. concerning which 
the/Wrawtnemfel ves are fo divided among themfelves 
for judgment, that they may feem to have defined this 
or that, rather becaufe they would fay fomething, than 
. bccaufe they were fure of that which they laid, as 
Httr.tnE- St. Hierome fomewhere faith of the Septuagmt. Now 
viiaf,}, jfj f uc h a ca p c not a mar g\n do well to admo- 
nifh the Reader to feek further, and not to conclude 
or dogmatize upon this or that peremptorily? For 
as it is a fault of incredulity, to doubt or thofe things 
that are evident; fo to determine of fuch things as 
the Spirit of God hath left (even in the judgment 
of the judicious) queftionable, can be no lefs than 
prefumption. Therefore as St. Auguftine faith, that 
X>/4fr. variety of tranflations is profitable for the finding out 
Cbnf.c.i. of the fenfe of the Scriptures: fo diverfity of fignifi- 
cation and fenfe in the margin, where the next is not 
fo clear, muft needs do good ; yea, is neceffary, as 
7 ^5- we are perfuaded. We know that Sixtus Quintus 
T *}' i • exprefly forbiddeth that any variety of readings of 
their vulgar edition fhould be put in the margin; 
(which though it be not altogether the fame thing to 
that we have in hand, yet it looketh that way;) but we 
think he hath not all of his own fide his favourers 
for this conceit. They that are wife had rather have 
their judgments at liberty in differences of readings, 
than to be captivated to one, when it may be the 
°f, , If they were fure that their high prieft had 

k ^ Ut U P * n kreaft, as Paul the fecond 

bragged, and that he were as free from error by fpecial 


privilege, as the di&ators of Rome were made by 
Jaw inviolable, it were another matter; then his word 
were an oracle, his opinion'a decifion. But the eyes 
or the world are now open, God be thanked, and 
wve been a great while; they find that he is fubject 


to the fame affe&ions and infirmities that others be, yU 
that his body is fubjeft to wounds; and therefore fo «« ion. 
much as he proveth, not as much as he claimeth, 
they grant and embrace. 

Another thing we think good to admonilh thee of, Rtafons 
gentle Reader, that we have not tied ourfelves to an inducing 
uniformity of phrafing, or to an identity of words, jj* n J )t ta . 
as feme peradventure would wi(h that we had done, ftaad cun * 
becaufe they obferve, that fome learned men feme- 
where have been as exaft as they could that way. 

Truly, that we might not vaiy from the fenfe of 
that which we had tranflated before, if the word fig- 
nified the fame thing in both places, (for there be wo^vonfjM. 
fome words that be not of the fame fenfe every where,) 
we were efpecially careful, and made a confidence, 
according to our duty. But that we (hould exprefs 
the fame notion in the fame particular word; as for 
example, if we trapflate the Hebrew or Greek word , 

once by purpofi , never to call it intent ; if one where 
journeying , never travelling ; if one where think y ne¬ 
ver fuppofe ; if one where pain y never ache ; if one 
where joy , never gladnefi y &c. thus to mince the 
matter, we thought to favour more of curiofity than 
wifdom, and that rather it would breed fcom in the 
atheift, than bring profit to the godly reader. For 
is the kingdom of God become words or fyllables ? 

Why fhould we be in bondage to them, if we may be 
free r ufe one precifely, when we may ufe another no ~ 
lefs fit as commodioufly ? A godly Father in the pri- Abed,

difference be little or none; and another reporteth, 
that he was much abufed for turning cucurbita (to . 
which reading the people had been ufed) into hedera . ? 8*7** 
Now if this happen in better times,and upon fo fmall 
occafions, we might juftly fear hard cenfure, if gene- * 
rally we fhould make verbal and unneceffary chang¬ 
ings. We might alfo be charged (by fcoffers) with 
fome unequal dealing towards a great number of 
good Englijh words. For as it is written of a certain * 
great Phflofopher, that he fhould fay, that thofe logs 
were happy that were made images to be worfhip- 
ped; for their fellows, as good as they, lay for 
blocks behind the fire: fo if we (hould fay, as it 
were, unto certain words. Stand up higher, have a 
place in the Bible always; and to others of like qua- 
, lity. Get y ou hence, be banifhed for ever; we might 
’ be taxed peradventure with St. James's words, 
namely. To be partial in ourfelves , and judges of evil 
thoughts . Add hereunto, that nicenefs in words was 
always counted the next ftep to trifling; and fo was 
to be curious about names too: alfo that we cannot *&>*«*»* 
follow a better pattern for elocution than God him- ™ owM- 
felf; therefore he ufing divers words in his holy £«»»•»* oro- 
writ, and indifferently tor one thing in nature: we, 
if we will not be fuperftitious, may ufe the fame li- See E u fib.

for that copy or (tore that he hath given us. Laflly, 
we have on the one fide avoided the fcrupulofity of a * tx 
the Puritanes, who leave the old Ecclefiaftical words, * aU 
and betake them to other, as when they put wajj/mg 
for baptifm y and congregation in (lead of Church: as 
alfo on the other tide we have (hunned the obfeuri- 
ty of the Papifts, in their azymes , tunike y rational , 
holocaujlsj prepuce , pafihe* and a number of fuch like, 
whereof tneir late translation is full, and that of pur¬ 
pose to darken the fenfe, that fince they muft needs 
tranflate the Bible, yet by the language thereof it 
may be kept from being underftood. But we defire 
that the Scripture may fpeak like itfelf, as in the lan¬ 
guage of Canaan y that it may be underftood even of 
the very vulgar. 

Many other things we might give thee warning of, 
gentle Header, if we had not exceeded the meafure 
of a preface already. It remaineth that we commend

fruitful,and increafedabundantly, and mul¬

and the land was filled with them.

6 And ye (hall keep it up until me c four¬

7 And they lhall take of the blood, and 
ftrike it on the two fide polls and on the

they lhall eat it. 

8 And they lhall eat the flelh in that

bread j and with bitter herbs they lhall eat it. 

9 Eat not of it raw, nor fodden at all with 
water, but * roall with fire ; his head with 
his legs, and with the purtenance thereof. 

70 *And ye lhall let nothing of it re¬ 
main until the morning j and that which 
remaineth of it until the morning ye 
lhall burn with fire. 

11 And thus lhall ye eat it; with your 
loins girded, your Ihoes on your feet, and 
your llaffin your hand j ana ye lhall eat it 
in halle: 8 it is the Lord’s paflover. 

12 For I" will pafs through the land of 
Egypt this night, and will finite all the 
firltborn in the land of Egypt, both man 
and beall ; and 1 againft all the || gods of 
Egypt I will execute judgment: k I am 
the Lord. 

13 And the blood lhall be to you for a 
token upon the houfes where ye are: and 
when I fee the blood, I will pafs over you, 
and the plague lhall not be upon you to 
deftroyyo«, when I finite the land of Egypt. 

14 And this day lhall be unto you 1 for a 
memorial; and ye fhall keep it a m feall to 
the Lord throughout your generations ; 
ye lhall keep it a feall" by an ordinance 
for ever. 

“Seven days fhall ye eat unleavened 
bread ; even the firft day ye fhall put away 
leaven out of your houles: for whofoever 
eateth leavened bread from the firft day 
until the feventh day, p that foul lhall be 
cut off from Ifrael. 

16 And in the firft day there ftjall be q an 
holy convocation, and in the feventh day 
there lhall be an holy convocation to you; 
no manner of work mall be done in tnem, 
fave that which every -j* man mull eat, that 
only may be done of you. 

17 And ye lhall obferve the feajl of un¬ 
leavened bread; for r in this felffame day 
have I brought your armies out of the 
land of Egypt: therefore lhall ye obferve 
this day in your generations by an ordi¬ 
nance for ever.

20 Ye lhall eat nothing leavened ; in all 
your habitations lhall ye eat unleavened
